What Clients Say

Cathy, your expertise and obvious ability to succeed in real estate is frankly an art form and it was a delight to work with you. You strike the perfect chord with your clients - professionally and personally. We consider ourselves fortunate to have experienced the "Cathy Bier magic"!

Kerry & Sean Forsythe (Buyers & Sellers)

Cathy was an absolute pleasure to work with from start to finish. We felt like we were dealing with a seasoned professional who gave us confidence through every step of the process. Specifically, her knowledge of the market was extremely valuable in how we priced our home and how we handled the offer, counter-offer process. We also feel that the tips on staging our home were a big factor in getting an offer after only one day on the market. We highly recommend working with Cathy.

Jeremy & Denise Huth (Sellers)

Thank you! We love our new place and couldn’t have had an easier time with a Realtor. You took extra time with us when we needed it. The transition from the city to La Grange was made easier in part because you know the town so well and could point out things that we couldn’t have known on our own such as what to expect for the price we wanted to spend, what to expect from a seller, etc. We really appreciated your guidance!

Beth Holland & Dan Unangst (Buyers)

Cathy did an amazing job for us. My father-in-law previously used her for two other properties to buy and sell and suggested her to us for our home sale. We were very pleased with all her hard work and efforts to get our home sold very quickly! Thanks a million!

Ryan & Dianna Ford (Sellers)

I found Cathy to be extremely knowledgeable regarding the real estate market and what it takes to sell a home. She helped with everything from staging to landscaping to making sure the selling process went smoothly and efficiently. She even helped when an unexpected home repair needed to be done. She was also an incredible help when it came to the closing and making sure the buyer was prepared. My only regret is now that the sale is over I won’t get to see and talk with her that much. I would definitely refer her to others.

Cathy Bier

#1 La Grange Area Broker!

Hello and welcome to my website!

I'm Cathy Bier and I'm a full-time, full-service, top Broker at Smothers Realty Group - the #1 real estate office in La Grange Area, IL.

As a long-time resident of La Grange Area, I'm intimately familiar with La Grange Area and the surrounding communities along the BNSF commuter train corridor (e.g. La Grange Area Park, Western Springs, Hinsdale, Clarendon Hills, Downers Grove, Countryside and Brookfield).

I've been a Realtor® with Smothers Realty Group since December 2000. Prior to this I was a Commercial Banking Vice President at Chase in Chicago for ten years. When I decided to make a career change to real estate, I chose Smothers Realty Group due to their market dominance in the area, their professional standards and the fact that they are a family owned local business.

By combining my professional and educational experience (MBA-DePaul University) with my profound determination to exceed client expectations, I quickly became the #1 area Broker.

In 2018 I was again - for the 11th consecutive year - the #1 Broker in both La Grange & La Grange Park with over $54 Million in total sales and 111 properties bought/sold.

While I’m certainly proud of my professional performance and association with Smothers Realty Group, I’m most proud of - and grateful for - the numerous referrals I’ve received from former clients and the many personal relationships I’ve built through my role as a trusted advisor.

If you're considering a move – let's talk! I can answer many of the questions you may have; let you know about area homes that might fit your needs; or provide you with insight into how best to sell your home - including a complimentary market analysis. Meanwhile, feel free to use the various links and tools on my website and read my client testimonials.

I welcome the opportunity to help you with any of your real estate needs.
